Author Judy Christie loves to read, write and talk about books. An award-winning journalist, Judy is the co-author of "Before and After: The Incredible Real-Life Stories of Orphans Who Survived the Tennessee Children's Home Society," a project that combines her love of stories, her Southern heritage, and her journalism background. She wrote the book with longtime friend Lisa Wingate, author of the bestseller "Before We Were Yours," a fictional account of the Tennessee Children's Home Society scandal. Judy's appreciation for interviewing began in elementary school, where she was editor of The Barret Banner, and continued in her work as a newspaper reporter and editor. Her interviews with the heroes of the Tennessee Children's Home Society tragedy tell stories of love and loss through the voices of adoptees, now in their seventies and eighties, and their families—and the unexpected blessing of a gathering of adoptees. Judy also has written a series of nonfiction self-help books and three series of Southern novels, including the Green, Louisiana, and Wreath Willis series. She writes daily and has kept a diary since she was eleven--and still has all of them. She is also an avid letter writer and loves to create mail art. Judy writes a #booklover column at www.shreveporttimes.com and invites you to visit her online. You can find her on Facebook @JudyChristieAuthor and Twitter @judypchristie.
